I changed my G-Mail Password through Google/Gmail but I cannot send any mail out. TB keeps asking for new password which I enter...but is rejected repeatedly! :|

Try deleting the saved password using tools -> options -> security -> passwords -> saved passwords, exiting Thunderbird (since the deleted password is still in memory) and restarting. That works around a known bug.

I assume you do not have two step verification enabled, in which case you need to use a app specific password. I don't know if you have to generate a new one if you change the gmail password.
